This could have been much worse. Yonic Serafin Cardenas Patino, of Garden Grove, oiled up after a bit of drinking, crashed his minivan into Honda Civic and then into an OCTA bus filled with passengers.
Patino won the Trifecta: He had an active warrant for a suspended license charge, he didn’t have a valid license, and he had previously been convicted of DUI! Oh, and he was on probation for domestic violence. When he’s finished recuperating at the hospital, he’s going to jail. He’ll need a good lawyer. With multiple probation violations, a multiple injury DUI and an active warrant, it would be likely that the district attorney would charge him with a felony DUI.
